Some positivity from Alan Pardew regarding transfers. He’s hopeful of a transfer breakthrough at Newcastle United in this coming week.
Toon are heading back from Faro, Portugal after winning the Guardian Tournament – and the week ahead if being built as pretty crucial as Pardew looks to add to his squad before jetting out for the pre-season match against ADO Den Haag on Saturday.
Pardew told the Sunday Sun:
“I think the situation is that by the end of the week – by next Sunday – I think we will have another player in. I’m hoping we will have two players in.
“And I don’t want to see anybody go out and I don’t think I will. That’s my genuine feeling.”
The paper speculates as to a potential new bid for Ajax midfielder Vurnon Anita, who impressed in the side’s victory over Southampton.
There is also hope that Demba Ba will still be at Newcastle next season – the next 48 hours are crucial when the release clause in his contract expires.
